ArjoHuntleigh Awarded Vascular Compression Contract With HealthTrust Purchasing Group
Date:11/1/2011

ADDISON, Ill., Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ArjoHuntleigh, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement for Vascular Compression Devices with HealthTrust Purchasing Group, L.P. (HealthTrust). The agreement, effective November 1, 2011, allows HealthTrust members to take advantage of special pricing and terms for the ArjoHuntleigh Flowtron® intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) devices for the prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

"ArjoHuntleigh is excited to continue our relationship with HealthTrust Purchasing Group and its members. By choosing ArjoHuntleigh, HealthTrust members will enjoy the latest technology, superior clinical outcomes, and maximal value and opportunities for optimal cost savings," stated Dan Raffensberger, ArjoHuntleigh Senior Director of Marketing.

Deep vein thrombosis affects approximately two million Americans each year. Blood clots from DVT can travel into the lungs, block circulation and cause a pulmonary embolism (PE), the most common preventable cause of hospital death. Complications from DVT kill more people each year in the U.S. than breast cancer, motor vehicle accidents and AIDS combined. Many of these deaths are highly preventable through the use of clinically proven thromboprophylaxis methods, such as the Flowtron intermittent pneumatic compression systems, which reduce the incidence of DVT formation in those patients at risk.
